Grand Award of R4,910,023.00

updated: 15-Feb-21

The North Gauteng High Court recently awarded an impressive settlement of R4,910,023.00 to a client of the esteemed law firm, de Broglio Attorneys. This well-known law firm is respected as being the best law firm that deals with Road Accident Fund (RAF) claims. The attorneys are experienced, the staff are dedicated to client service, and the ultimate aim of high settlements is the order of the day.

In this recent settlement, Minki Oosthuizen*was hit from behind  and suffered a brain injury, psychological problems and various other injuries. de Broglio Attorneys successfully settled the merits of her claim 100% in her favour and continued to settle the monetary value of her claim at R4,910,023.00. The settlement amount of R4,910,023.00 was finalized in the North Gauteng High Court.

Minki reflected on what happened after the accident, “I actually think I approached de Broglio Attorneys based on the advertising on the TV.” She continued, “We were referred by friends to other attorneys before we went to de Broglio. They looked at the case and because I didn’t have huge hospital bills they said the case would not be worth their while or my while. They looked at the records from the hospital and said I didn’t have a worthwhile case.” de Broglio Attorneys took on this case and settled it for almost R5 million Rand, a claim that another law firm said was not worthwhile!

Minki was so grateful that she chose de Broglio Attorneys to do her RAF claim. she said, “The friend who referred me to use those other attorneys hardly got any money at all. I felt so terrible for him because he had serious injuries and he actually got hardly anything, he didn’t get a decent settlement. It’s actually very sad.”

“Their service has been wonderful to be honest. de Broglio Attorneys communication was very good. They fight for you. I always felt that they had my best interest at heart which made me feel comfortable. They always communicated with me about what’s happening with the RAF, even after the settlement they are still communicating with me, you are not forgotten. Even after the case I can get hold of my attorney and ask her anything,” she explained.

Minki was very impressed with the service she received from de Broglio Attorneys, “What was a very traumatic situation was made easier by my attorneys. An aspect of my life was made easier because de Broglio Attorneys handled it for me,” she commented.

Once her claim was settled, Minki felt a sense of relief. She described how she felt, “No amount of money can ever compensate the losses over the last few years since the accident but I am definitely happy with what we got. I suppose if the RAF was more organized and we had already received the payment I would be more ecstatic.”
